"An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered"
Is that cool or what??
I was discussing the politics of the day at
Brenner's Brew in Bridgeton Saturday morning
I was told I would like this.
Indeed I do!!
Here's How to do It
Sand is a lousy place to bury your head.
With crabs nipping at your lips
and grenheads biting your butt,
it's easy to be distracted
from the pretense
of not knowing what the hell is going on.
What with high tide rolling in
when you've just packed down
the last shovelful,
wind blowing your labor
into the dunes
and kids building castles
on your neat little heap,
there probably isn't a worse place
to remain oblivious.
if you're determined to go through the trouble,
make it stick-
get real stuck.
Encase your head in concrete,
Jimmy Hoffa style.
Hear, see, smell no evil

I can not EVEN believe this one. He is a smart man but says the strangest and oddest things.
This comment takes the cake.
PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE HIM. I do not want to see these videos over and over again. If Obama does pick him better be ready for some questions.

County's choice of teen pregnancy program raises questions
By By LINDA FORBES • August 20, 2008
Last week, Cumberland County Freeholder Director Lou Magazzu garnered attention by his public finger-pointing tirade (now on YouTube) accusing Millville resident and Democratic stalwart Mark Krull of being a Republican spy.
The next day, Lou's behavior was even more bizarre. He accepted an award for his response to the county's teen pregnancy crisis. The odd thing is, Lou has done nothing on behalf of teen pregnancy prevention other than promising the agency that gave him the award (Community Health Care Inc.) $100,000 in no-bid funding from the county for a teen pregnancy program.
The proposed award raises a number of questions.
The freeholders' response is to fund a program that is going to help mothers communicate with their daughters and offer services to improve girls' self-esteem. It offers workshops that include "role playing, theatrical skits, and dinner-date package incentives and giveaways." Who is going to hold Community Health Care accountable for this program's effectiveness in preventing teen pregnancies, and how will effectiveness be measured?
And, once again, why is Community Health Care uniquely equipped to conduct this social services program, when its primary mission is health services delivery?
I put these questions out in public because I believe the county's taxpayers deserve answers.
But even with satisfactory answers to these questions, Lou Magazzu's acceptance of an award recognizing all he has done to prevent teen pregnancy is especially ironic, given his apparent lack of interest in a report on teen pregnancy in Cumberland County presented to the freeholders earlier this year.
The icy reception and two-minute time period Magazzu, who was then freeholder director, granted for presentation of the report spoke volumes.

I went to pick up Carolyne's last 2 pays and managed to get one The 2nd one that pays to the 8th is being held up due to "questions". On Saturday I started the day with tennis then a 2nd attempt to get the final check but the powers that be
still state they have formulate more questions toward the end of the week. Lets hope all this can be resolved soon!!! Its really time to move on!
Well, enough of THAT.....
Later that day we soothed ourselves with ice cream at the Custard Corral out on E. Broad Street. I think this is the area that Liberty Village might want to build on. Today( Sunday) was mellow. I did not play tennis, instead I just slept in and it felt good. We had a nice walk with our dogs as well and you can see part of it here. Now its time to rest and work on positive thoughts such as getting my deposit on the house the we could not buy.

when I stumbled upon a town hall meeting of Cumberland County NJ Democrats and
this happened.. Below is the offending video
From the Millville News August 14 2008
County Dems, GOP unload
Page 4 of 5
The candidates maintained the only "serious" offenses - such as drunken driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving uninsured - would fall under the surcharge.
Suddenly, at one point, Magazzu approached Michael Krull, of the city school board, who had just walked in with a digital camera and was videotaping the proceedings, and accused him of "spying for the Republicans."
Krull stated he was not a Republican.
Magazzu relented, stating, "Sorry, but that's where we are in politics today, and it's sad."
Krull left shortly afterward.
Later, Magazzu said he would "bet money" Krull was a spy for the Republicans.
The meeting got back on track and shifted toward taxes.
Magazzu defended the current freeholder board, stating it has lowered county property taxes.
"And we will continue to do so," he said.

I heard the news today oh, boy
About a woman who was made to leave
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to gag
5pm when arrived the hags
She blew their minds and took it vary far
She didn't notice that the votes had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen her face before
Nobody was really sure why
she was made to grieve
and that is why we gonna leave...
I saw a blog today oh, boy
The Family Center had just won the war
A crowd of people clapped their hands
But I just had to moan
Having felt alone
I'd love to find a new home..
Woke up, got out of bed
dragged a mouse across my screen
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
and looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my glasses and grabbed my lunch
Started my car and had a hunch
Found my way to work and thought about the jerks
Somebody spoke and then I felt the hurt
I read the news today oh, boy
Four thousand holes in Holly City USA
And though her faults were rather small
They had to count them all
Now we know how many holes
it takes to fill the City Hall
I'd love to turn on you

Did have some conversations today. I asked about electricians and plumbers.
At that point, Well, I was in a spot cause I like and trust
I told him my truth, that I did not think of calling anyone since it was a foreclosed
house . As you know, our minds are in a different place
I went home and chilled out then painted more of the shed and went to the Oar House.
I met and we got to talking and he stated in as many words that
to find out why something happened follow the relationships.
After he left, I met some dude who works at the Motorsports Park. He was
a pompous ass.
I think you are going to see me gradually withdrawal from things here.
This process really started with my
Here is to true friendship. This will always continue for that is what sustains

Or what you can afford—sliding fee scale.

Yoga joins together the body, mind, emotions and spirit through meditation in movement.
